Hilly 7 miles with club.  Got loads of suggestions and tips from an experienced marathoner and really enjoyed it

5.2 miles in my dinner hour, this time past banks of bluebells and the wild garlic coming out  in flower    one more long run to go before the half marathon.....  hope it cools down a bit.

Think I said I wouldn't do more than 6 miles while still coming back from injury. Yeah well. 10.6 miles today, leisurely 1hr29. Couldn't have pushed today and had to take a bottle of water. Have got a bug or something and an upset stomach. Heel/ankle no problem. Windy (both me and the weather), but not so bad (the weather).

Sun breaking through clouds.

Really rubbish this morning, got about 2 miles in and just had no energy! walked a good part of it back home. Does not bode well for race on sunday

Had to have a couple nights off this week after an annoying foot sprain was picked up on the weekend.

Did 5k on the local seafront promenade last night and went well (pretty windy, but has been worse). Had planned to be doing 10k originally, but that changed due to my sprained foot.

More than anything I was just glad my foot had completely sorted itself out after the rest and ice.  I am running in the Swansea Bay 5k on Tuesday which is my first ever event so was worried over the last few days that I wouldn't shake the sprain off in time, but surprising what a few days rest did.

CP - don't sweat it, just take it easy before your race, and good luck for it!

I'm feeling sluggish still, 4 weeks after mara

Did 4.5 miles this morning with middle 2 at target HM pace. Breathing okay but legs feel heavy and I seem tyo have no kick in my form at the minute...

Good weekend's running all

10 miles very hilly route in prep for St Albans HM in a few weeks- which is hilly- but nowhere near as hilly as today's route. Surprisingly, it was one of those rare runs where everything comes together and it feels easy.

Morning and it's wet here again.

4Miles easy as legs heavy.

first run for a week due to heavy cold. The club are running the Capital Ring footpath as a relay today so i did Wimbledon Park to Osterley, which came out as 18k at 6m/km. I will also do the final stage this evening, ending at Parliament Hill and the pub!

@nessie if i don't remember, good luck at St Albans!

Just 5 .5 miles today legs felt heavy, recovering from a cold and the physio said I had

Medial tibial stress syndrome

Hi, John.  Well done on your Mara!

Just 2.4 miles around the coastal park in Crosby in the gather gloom and incessant drizzle.

Streak Watch = 832 days

Welcome John

Swittle- loving your work, as always.

Me- 7 x hill reps with 1.5 hour walk to warm down after.  Tried a new, steeper hill today.  It hurt.  Feeling quite virtuous now tho.

12/05/2013 at 14:55

13.2 miles this morning.  Still a bit painful.  Phsyio said that it was OK to run but to ice regularly and stretch a lot.

12/05/2013 at 19:06

Cheers, Nessie!

12/05/2013 at 20:19

Thanks swittle and nessie , hill training sounds painful but rewarding

Hi John.
Still got a bit of a virus. Settling back in after my heel injury went out of the window with a 16.75miler this morning. Nice though. Some of the country roads I took were a lot busier then I'd expected, which made it a bit hairy. Heel fine. Virus fine. But at mile 12 my left knee got very tight. Nursed myself back home with a few stops to stretch which calmed it down for a while. Took it at a comfortable pace from the start but had to slow myself right down. Still, overall moving time was 2hrs20. Please not another lingering injury. Pretty please.

Rubbish 5k on a treadmill in a noisy and badly airconditioned gym in a hotel on the outskirts of Watford.  I hate treadmills but couldn't face running round a car park on an industrial estate in the rain and howling gale.
